All Guilds Meeting - April 2013

A rather fiesty crowd at this month's AGM.  What seemed like a quick meeting soon grew into a full-sized one..right before the crowd's eyes!  Here are the usual raw and cleansed chatlogs for those that missed it.

DimensionTravelerCalum/Heritage Night

DTC came to the stage first to mention that HN has been put on hold for the time being for a new project!  This will be similar to Spoken Word Night conducted by vid back years ago, specifically 25 and 50.  More details, such as date and time, will be released soon, so check the Heritage Night site for more info.

Guild of Messengers

Thinking the meeting would be short, the GoMe went next, introducing to everyone the latest Messenger to join the Guild: Samoth! The Guild also updated everyone on the progress of URU2U's next episode, which is coming along nicely and will hopefully be released before the next AGM.  There were also some non-GoMe related announcements: Samoth mentioned the Relto of Ainia, Max talked about the upcoming International Hood, and Lyrositor updated everyone on the status of Lyrobot.

Announcing the Guild of Messengers and Writers (April Fool's!)

GoMaWEDIT: April Fool's! Did we get you?

For many years, the Guild of Messengers and the Guild of Writers have existed as distinct entities in the Uru community. Collaboration and communication have always been the key words to describe our relationship, itself based on a foundation of mutual trust and respect. After much thinking and planning, we have decided to take this one step further: we are proud to announce that both guilds are fusing together to form the Guild of Messengers and Writers!

We'll be providing more information about the GoMaW at the AGM, but here are the essential points you need to know right now. Read more

All Guilds Meeting - March 2013

We're charging right through this year at a crazy pace!  This month's All Guilds Meeting came and went and once again, there was much to talk about!  Check out the raw and cleansed chatlogs and see how things went.

Here's a summary of the meeting:

Guild of Writers

Hoikas took the time to guage interest in having a St. Patrick's Day parade in Gehn shard.  He also mentioned a few statistics about the GoW's shard as well as announcing that the next release, Gehn.15, is expected to be released March 9th, with some bug fixes, a new Tre'bivdil stained glass entry designed by Tweek and modeled for URU by Doobes, and a new Age for all to enjoy!

OpenUru.org

Mac and rarified gave an update on Minkata and dealings with Cyan.  rarified is catching up on some Foundry housekeeping, including compiling a new build of the shard's client, to get ready for new updates and fixes.  They're still in contact with Cyan about getting said additions into MOULa soon, reiterating the need for a healthy CAVCON meter to help things along.

All Guilds Meeting - February 2013

It's Groundhog Day in the US, and as we all wait for a (hopefully) early spring, we repeated our usual tradition of the All Guilds Meeting!  Many groups were there this month, both new and veteran faces coming in to update everyone.  We have our usual raw and cleansed chatlogs for your consumption.

Here's what happened:

Destiny

Christopher and Mystler announced the public release of an URU test shard dubbed "Destiny" after the spaceship in the television show Stargate Universe (which Mystler had been watching at the time).  This shard will primarily be for testing purposes, including new fan Ages for multiplayer functions.  More information can be found on their forum.

Alien

Next to present was Alien.  She announced that she will be broadcasting audio plays of both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings that were first broadcast by the BBC about 30 years ago.  The broadcasts would be one hour each week for 15 weeks.  Alien plans to start them around the time Heritage Night ends its current cycle in about 6 weeks, so look back here for further details!

All Guilds Meeting - January 2013

Another month, another All Guilds Meeting. This time, Doobes was on a well-deserved vacation, so Lyrositor took over moderating duties for this month. As usual, both cleansed and raw logs are available for your viewing pleasures, as well as the customary summary of the event:

Christian Walther

Christian was our first speaker and summed up the recent series of events concerning the licensing problems with Bink, which interrupted the normal flow of development and testing. To be concise, a portion of Uru's code was discovered by RAD Game Tools (makers of the Bink video codec) to contain copyrighted code from their Software Development Kit (SDK). They demanded that the code be removed from all CWE repositories, an arduous task to say the least. Developers promptly began the process of rewriting repository history to remove these files. Most of the work has been acheived by now, fortunately, and only a few tasks remain, and H'uru has already resumed its normal development pace. Read more
